Bread from Heaven (Photo by Pastor Davis)

Don’t hoard treasure down here where it gets eaten by moths and corroded by rust or—worse!—stolen by burglars. Stockpile treasure in heaven, where it’s safe from moth and rust and burglars. It’s obvious, isn’t it? The place where your treasure is, is the place you will most want to be, and end up being. (Matthew 6:19-21 MSG)

A devout life does bring wealth, but it’s the rich simplicity of being yourself before God. Since we entered the world penniless and will leave it penniless, if we have bread on the table and shoes on our feet, that’s enough.

But if it’s only money these leaders are after, they’ll self-destruct in no time. Lust for money brings trouble and nothing but trouble. Going down that path, some lose their footing in the faith completely and live to regret it bitterly ever after. (1Timothy 6:7-10 MSG)

If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers—most of which are never even seen—don’t you think he’ll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you? What I’m trying to do here is to get you to relax, to not be so preoccupied with getting, so you can respond to God’s giving. People who don’t know God and the way he works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how he works. Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.  (Matthew 6:30-33 MSG)

I’m glad in God, far happier than you would ever guess—happy that you’re again showing such strong concern for me. Not that you ever quit praying and thinking about me. You just had no chance to show it. Actually, I don’t have a sense of needing anything personally. I’ve learned by now to be quite content whatever my circumstances. I’m just as happy with little as with much, with much as with little. I’ve found the recipe for being happy whether full or hungry, hands full or hands empty. Whatever I have, wherever I am, I can make it through anything in the One who makes me who I am. I don’t mean that your help didn’t mean a lot to me—it did. It was a beautiful thing that you came alongside me in my troubles. (Philippians 4:11-12 MSG)

God’s blessing makes life rich; nothing we do can improve on God. (Proverb 10:22 MSG)

I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”  (John 16:33 ESV)

Now, may God continually to add a blessing for each of you to His Holy Word, in Jesus name we have ministered this word to you for the edification of your soul.  May the grace of God rest and abide in you now and forever, we pray, AMEN.

  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog and passing it on. May God bless your ministry sir! I can see you love the Lord and you love to write! Have a blessed week!


      Thank you so very much Cherilyn, and you are right on all fronts, for God is truly and awesome God in my life, and I will stand on top of the highest mountain and tell the world that he can be the same in their lives. Grace and mercy be with you now and forever. Amen!

      • Thank you for the blessing! In this world we all need all the good prayers we can get and all the encouragement for the devil is like a roaring lion but Jesus is our peace!


          You are so right, and the one thing we all can do; is each day for the rest of our natural lives, send one person somewhere in this world a note of encouragement, and ask them to do the same. When we learn to lean and depend on Jesus, who has shown us that all things are possible, we will be on our way to fulfilling our mission of blessing and being blessed. Again, thank you, and be encouraged in the Lord this day in all that you do in your ministry to help others see the light, in the name of Jesus.
